    Vitrix has a 80% saponins content and 20% protodioscin content. The key is having a 20% protodioscin content. Most members but Optimum Nutrition's tribulus because of the price. It contains only a 40% saponins content. You would have to take twice the amount of Optimum's Trib to get the same effect. After doubling the pills, the price is actually more than Vitrix.

    I used 8g of Optimum Nutrition's tribulus for a PCT and it made my skin very oily. I used 8g because it is half as potent as Vitrix or Tribex. 4g for PCT is considered the normal for PCT.

    In my case I must say that no trib product at all has worked for me...even other products such as Fenotest. Not sure what it is about these products that do jack for me.

    Tongkat ali is supposed to be superior to tribulus. I have been taking Redkat from Biotest and have noticed increased libidio and larger loads (for lack of proper spelling ). If you take Optimum's Nutrition Tribulus at 8g ED, I think you would notice a libido difference. Both are supposed to help with minor testicular atrophy as well.

    Thanks zOaib. 15-20% protodioscin content is excellent. How hard is it to cap? I have read that it is virtually impossible to choke the powder down.

    Yeah I had thought of trying Tongkat...have also tried Maca caps and nothing...to tell u the truth I'm not gonna spend my money on any more trib products again unless I get sent a sample and it works. Have already spent money for nothing.

    The only time that I would use trib or tongkat is for PCT. I don't really look for them to add any muscle. They come in handy when you want a boost before a roll in the hay with your woman.

    Well then I'll have to give it a go....but seriously if it increases my load anymore....I'll have to consider getting into the porn industry, cause I'll even outshine Peter North! In fact I already have him beat!

    No way man! I saw him do an anal scene with a chick on a boat and I have never seen anything like it . I looked like 4 guys nutted on her!

    Clomid, nolva, arimidex , tongkat ali, tribulus, ZMA would be my weapons of choice.

    The ONLY study ive ever seen shows that protodioscin is the active
    it converts into DHEA at a minimal rate and DHEA raises your test levels


    why not cut out the middle man and just go with DHEA???


    Trib never did anything for me either

    Long time, no see Buff. What dose do you recommend for PCT (4g)? Or do you just run with Tribestan's recommended dose?

    Hey brotha...

    I usually run HCG @ 500iu's E3D for 3 weeks and about a week into that
    start running a good quality Trib at 3 grams ED for a few weeks
    before dropping it down to 1,500 - 2,000mg for another 4 weeks or so...

    For me it works great.. I also run Nolva during PCT at 10mg ED during the
    whole time just to help keep any excess estrogen from binding with recepors...

    Not a fan of Clomid, never have been... Don't really use it...
